Restoring the Default Settings

You can restore the factory default configuration settings to reset the router's user name to admin, the password to password, and the IP address to 192.168.1.1. This procedure erases your current configuration, including your wireless security settings, and restores the factory defaults. When you log in after resetting, the Smart Wizard configuration assistant prompts you to configure these settings.

To restore the factory default configuration settings:

  1. Use a sharp object such as a pen or a paper clip to press and hold the restore factory settings button, located on the rear panel of the router, for about 10 seconds.
  2. Release the restore factory settings button, and wait for the router to reboot.
  3. The factory default settings are restored so that you can access the router from your Web browser using the factory defaults.
